2002 Ford Escape XLT Choice 4WD 4dr SUV (3.0L 6cyl 4A)
I had been researching, shopping and
test driving for about three months to
repalce a leased saturn. I drove
everything from an Acura RSX to an VW
Passat. Three weeks ago I was shamed
into visiting a Ford dealer by my
Brother-in-law who makes a living
building the Explorer. I drove the
escape and much to my suprise it was
almost everything I was looking for.
With 200hp it preformed very well It
has more than enough room in the back
seat for even my 6'3" frame (my sons
will all be at least my size in the
very near future). and it has an
impressive supply of after-market
accessories to make it stand out in a
I like the six disk in-dash changer and
the power seats.
Interiour could be a little more
refined, the quality of some of the
plastic is average at best.
